Commission supports Drug Free Communities grant

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- The Morgan County Commission will be the fiscal agent for the Drug Free Communities Support grant for the Morgan County Partnership and has signed a resolution in support of the program. 

At Thursday's Morgan County Commission meeting, Partnership Project Director Susan Caperton said the grant is for as much as $125,000 per year for five years and can be renewed for six years thereafter. If the grant is awarded, funding will begin in September.  

Caperton said coalitions are in place and programs such as Rachel's Challenge, Too Good for Drugs and Communities Mobilizing for Change on Alcohol (CMCA) have been implemented.

Resolution approved to repair Community Service Center

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. -- At Thursday's Morgan County Commission meeting, the $15,000 Community Participation grant with a $5,000 match was approved by Commission President Brenda J. Hutchinson and Commissioner Stacy A. Dugan. Commissioner Thomas R. Swaim was absent. 


The grant money will be used to replace the railing and sidewalk at the Community Service Center, County Administrator Bill Clark said. He said $5,000 will be used for a play area for the Morgan County Chapter of the Boys & Girls Club.
